0an 5rranti0C0 Sxaminer Friday, April 18, 1969 I Rosemary Is Expecting Again, " By Jeanne Miller LITTLE RIVER (Mendocino County) American In-" ternational Pictures is using this wind-swept, mist-shroud-T cd coastal area to provide atmosphere for a new film called "Dunwich," starring Sandra Dee and Dean Stock-.t.welL The plot, as it was outlined to me, deals with an innocent girl who is seduced by the Devil so that she , might give birth to a Satanic monster. - Does it sound somehow familiar? mm . Daniel Haller, who is di-l - reeling the film, laughingly denied that the popularity " of "Rosemary's Baby" in-l spired the production. " "It's sheer concidence," - he twinkled. "Our film is . based on a supernatural tale by H. P. Lovecraft who worked at the turn of the century. "However, we are not making a Gothic horror story. We want a much more F - - f - - SANDRA DEE 'I've made 25 rotten films" contemporary image one that will bring witch-ercraft and necromancy into ian area of credibility, at Jeast to some extent." Miss Dee, a forthright, "disarming girl, feels that her role is more provocative than her bland ingenue ; characterizations of the past. "I've made 25 films," she said, "and all of them Swere rotten. That's bell cause I was hung up with Jan exclusive contract at Universal since I was a "mere child. And I never got a good role. The only fairly decent pictures I ever did were on loan-outs to other studios, but even at that they weren't too FRANK GORSHIN FINAL WEEKS! ftftEA600DMAN, CHAJoJc dWU SUNDAY MATINEES! 2 AND 5 P.M.

"Universal kept promising to change my image and let me grow up, but they never did. So now that I'm free, I intend to pick and choose my roles with great care. "The reason I decided to do 'Dunwich was because I couldn't put the script down once I started reading it. I had read so many that I had to plow through, just because I promised someone. Even if this movie turns out to be a complete disaster, I guarantee it will change my image." Miss Dee then declared that she will not do the nude scene which is called for in the script. "I don't object on moral grounds," she said. "If a girl has the body and flair to appear nude, more power to her. But even in the privacy of my own bath room, I rush to drape myself in a towel the very moment I step out of a shower. So how could I appear naked before a whole crew? "That's why I don't do television. I'm just too shy rasa? tin? IM : TOMORROW AT 11 :00 AM AND 2:00 PM MARINES' MEMORIAL THEATRE Sutter t Mason Street ALL TICKETS $2.00 P TICKETS HOW: MACY4SH.

Stockwell, who plays the demon with designs on Miss Dee, is a laconic man whose mind seemed miles away when we caught him on a windy hill between takes. The former child star has been somewhat inactive professionally for several years except for some . work he did for BBC in London. What does he plan after "Dunwich?"

The cast also includes Sam Jaffe, as Stockwell's demon grandfather; Lloyd Bochner as a rural doctor who delivers a monster child, and Joanna Moore Jordan who commented, "I niay the Ruth Gordon role of a friendly neighborhood witch."
